CvRSvS: LATIN III

MAGISTER: mr. EARLE

COURSE OBJECTIVE

Latin III is an Honors course and is a primer for AP Catullus/Ovid. All essential
Latin grammar will be covered within the first semester. The class will analyze the
literature and history of the Late Republic and Early Empire, with an emphasis on selected
authors such as Catullus, Caesar, Cicero, Ovid, and most especially, Pliny the Younger.
Students who take this class should have the basis for Latin grammar (Latin I and II) firmly
behind them. Upon the 2nd semester, the class will start the AP syllabus with the poet Ovid.
In Latin III the Ecce Romani series is used only for reference. The majority of new
grammar will come from the instruction, so TAKE GOOD NOTES.
